Ann Welles and Amelia Harnas of Exhibit A hosted a “Noontime Talk with Anne Gant,” from 12:00 – 1:00 PM on Friday January 20th. We opened portfolios and flat files, and discussed the work at the gallery. I brought two new pieces with me, and was able to “unveil” them during the talk.
Thanks to all who attended! It was a nice crowd, and I hope we can do it again next time I am in town.
Anne Gant Pyrographies
Carr Gottstein Gallery APU Campus
Photos from recent solo show in Anchorage, Alaska, and a review in the local paper. I showed one large wall pieces (9 panels) and 7 smaller pieces.
The show was paired with a show by my mother, Alice Gant, who is a fiber artist. It was an honor to have solo shows simultaneously, and great fun to show in adjacent galleries. We saw a lot of old friends while we were in Alaska, and also caught up with the art scene there- including admiring the gorgeous new Anchorage Museum building.
Check out the review here:
We also got some nice pre-show press in the Anchorage Daily news, with color photos of our artwork, and even an article about a bike route to all the openings on First Friday, including a stop at our shows.
Unpacking the artwork with mom- the portfolios were sent from Amsterdam, Brooklyn and my gallery in Corning. Lots of coordination to get everything together.
The biggest one had its own wall- Midden and Moraine
Exhibit A represented artists at the Echo Art Fair this last weekend in Buffalo, NY. About 3,000 people visited the event.
(Joshua Sperling’s work on left, Tricia Wright on right.) I FedEx-ed this work from Amsterdam a couple of weeks ago
- it’s always nice to finally see it hanging and to know that it got there safely.

In January I went to the Studio of the Corning Museum of Glass as a teaching assistant for Anna Boothe’s class on casting and moldmaking with murrini. I’m in the green apron…
Ann Welles, the directory of Exhibit A Gallery in Corning also hosted a “meet and greet” with her artists, which was then nicely promoted by the Corning Museum of Glass on their Facebook page, which said:
See new works recently arrived from Amsterdam by Anne Gant at Exhibit A on Market Street in Corning. Gant blows and works glass and presses it into paper while it’s still hot. This destroys the glass. It’s glass art with no glass in it….with beautiful results.
As always, it’s great to be in Corning- the outstanding museum and library, the studio which is always full of energy, the huge number of knowledgeable glass people everywhere! From David Whitehouse’s lectures and Bill Gudenrath’s tours of Museum after-hours to Dennis James talking about the glass armonica- to all the scientists and engineers busy on new super-strong glasses, it’s a wonderful environment for a glass artist.
And of course on the main street is Exhibit A- with 5 new pieces from me. If you are in town, check out Thali for Indian food, and the lovely study collection of Frederick Carder glass, which is next to the Studio and free to visit…
